The hotel had no facilities, but its location was convenient. few cafe's and shops are nearby and proximity to the train... More

We travel from Osaka to Kyoto by JR and the Hotel Kintetsu located right above the Kyoto Station. It is very convenient as we don't have to carry our luggage very far. The check in time for this hotel is 3pm, so we left our luggage bag for them to keep. The room is very small in size but clean.... More

We stayed at this wonderful hotel. I was worried that the noise from the train station would keep me up as I am a very light sleeper. To my surprise I couldn't even hear them coming or going. This hotel is also in a great location. And the shops and restaurants are too many to mention. Hotel staff was awesome... More

Great amenities and excellent customer service! The room was clean and for the price a real bargain! The room was pretty small but I only was there at the end of the day so it was more then enough. The employees at the counter did not speak english well, but were very polite and always hard working. I showed them... More

The Hotel Kintetsu Kyoto Station is connected to the railroad station. The main hallway of the railroad station is level with the third floor of a department store. You walk through the store to the elevators that take you to the sixth floor hotel lobby. You use a tap card to get the elevator to work. (It's the only hotel... More

Kintetsu is a modern, clean and new looking hotel right above Kyoto station. It is conveniently located to the local train lines as well. There are shops and restaurants below the hotel. The rooms are quiet small as would be expected at a transit hotel, but still comfortable enough to fit 2 suitcases. The bathroom was amazing. Heated electronic toilet,... More

Hotel Kintetsu Kyoto Station delivered to my expectations. Rooms were clean and had the basics I was seeking at an acceptable price. The room I was in was on the track side so not much to look at but I also did not notice much noise. I was in Kyoto on business and had limited need for hotel views -... More

What I love about this hotel is the location. It's exactly next to the station (my room view was the rail link but it didn't bother me, as shinkansen are very quiet train), it has a lot of shopping places in the mall, easy to find public bus, and omiyage (souvenir) stores. Nothing too fancy, but I guess for about... More

Typical business hotel, no frills or anything particular to brag about. Rooms smaller than average, but clean and basic. Staff very friendly. Good location but tricky to access via taxi unless you drive all the way around to get the the entrance, easier to drop off on the station side and walk underground.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
